Song lyrics to Friend Like Me, written by Howard Elliott Ashman / Alan Menken, performed by Robin Williams in Walt Disney’s Aladdin

Well, Ali Baba had them forty thieves
Scheherezade had a thousand tales
But master you in luck ’cause up your sleeves
You got a brand of magic never fails
You got some power in your corner now
Some heavy ammunition in your camp
You got some punch, pizzazz, yahoo and how
See all you gotta do is rub that lamp
And I’ll say

Mister Aladdin, sir
What will your pleasure be?
Let me take your order
Jot it down
You ain’t never had a friend like me

Life is your restaurant
And I’m your maitre d’
C’mon whisper what it is you want
You ain’t never had a friend like me

Yes sir, we pride ourselves on service
You’re the boss
The king, the shah
Say what you wish
It’s yours, true dish
How about a little more Baklava?

Have some of column A
Try all of column B
I’m in the mood to help you dude
You ain’t never had a friend like me

Can your friends do this?
Do your friends do that?
Do your friends pull this out their little hat?
Can your friends go poof?
Well, lookee here
Can your friends go, Abracadabra, let ‘er rip
And then make the sucker disappear?

So dont’cha sit there slack-jawed, buggy-eyed
I’m here to answer all your midday prayers
You got me bonafide, certified
You got a genie for your charg√© d’affaires
I got a powerful urge to help you out
So what-cha wish?
I really want to know
You got a list that’s three miles long, no doubt
Well, all you gotta do is rub like so – and oh

Mister Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three
I’m on the job, you big nabob
You ain’t never had a friend, never had a friend
You ain’t never had a friend, never had a friend
You ain’t never had a friend like me
You ain’t never had a friend like me, hah!
